I was riding out by UBC today and as I was going by the parkade that is right by the north end of the school on the road that goes to Jericho Beach, some guy hit me with his car. He was taking a left turn out of the parkade to head west on street that I was on. I was heading west. He had a stop sign and I did not. He wasn't even looking left. He slowly rolled out past the stop line paused and then just as I was going by his car, he hits me square on. My bars do a full lock to the left and I go flying over the bars and roll once or twice. I had slowed right down, cuz I had a feeling he didn't see me. I should've stopped, but I didn't think someone could be that ignorant. You have to look both ways! I was contemplating using my horn and in hindsight, I should have. I should've stopped altogether, but I'm okay for the most part. I've got some scrapes and bruises, but I walked away from the accident. Luckily, there were like ten witnesses and a cop nearby who came to the scene immediately.
My bike definately took the worst of the accident. There isn't a panel on the thing that isn't scratched. The only areas that didn't get scratched are my headlights and the front part of the front fairing, my tank and my new pipe (thank god.) So, looks like I'm gonna be bikeless for a while. Sucks cuz I just insured last Saturday and I have a five day weekend this week. Oh well, atleast I'm okay.
